Now that it's out of my system...I don't honestly know who I'd decide I wanted taking the shot...it's tough to argue with any of those players.
I'll agree with the last part but Sundin couldn't tape Iginla's stick in that department in the last 3 years

Henri Richard was awesome in that department too, even way past his prime. He was certainly a very key part of a lot of his 11 Stanley Cups.

Mario Lemieux, Joe Sakic...those 2 names pop up in my mind...then there's the lonely thought of Greg Adams and his overtime/gamewinning goal(s) magic in Vancouver.

Talking of "clutch players" you really ommitted john madden,joe nueindyk(bad spelling)to think of a couple.The most famous clutch scorer of all-time (although
only for one tournament) was Paul Henderson.

Well, the ballots have all been counted and it seems there's plenty of faith in Super Mario when the games on the line. I was a bit suprised to see no love for a guy like Robitaille- shows the quality of the competition.

As always, your responses were intelligent and well thought out.
